Modern root canal procedures provide an excellent way of saving a tooth which, in the past, would have been extracted.
Root canal treatment is needed when the pulp of the tooth becomes infected through decay or injury. The pulp lies inside the tooth and delivers its blood supply and nutrients. If the infection is not removed, it can spread throughout the root canal system of the tooth and cause an abscess leading to damage to the bone around the tooth. Without treatment, the tooth is likely to have to be removed.
Root canal treatment involves removing the infected pulp and filling the root canals. First, we will make the tooth and its surrounding area numb so you won’t feel any discomfort, clean and disinfect the root system then finally we seal it with a special filling material which helps avoid any potential problems in the future. Often the tooth is left weakened by the decay, so we may recommend fitting a crown to strengthen it.
Our experienced team will ensure your treatment is as pain-free and as comfortable as possible.
